35m.

Rockfax Description
A classic route with some great climbing and exposure. Head up the left side of the slab past a bolt to a ledge. Move out right to regain the slab near the arete. Climb the slab and arete boldly, passing spaced bolts to a great finale and lower-off. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
big and bold, good bolts, but well spaced, good holds for the most, although be prepared to remove a few weathered holds on your ascent. Character building!

harold walmsley 17 Sep, 2016 TR rpt Done twice as first time I stopped a fair bit to clean grass off the lower slab. Quite a big bit of rock also pulled off low down with bare hands. Whats left seems OK.

shed_hed 16 Jul, 2014 Lead O/S Spaced bolts but easy mostly easy climbing inbetween. Some suspect rock, especialy near the start, so have to take care on it. Can just about lower off on a 60m rope.

ksjs 21 May, 2013 Lead O/S Thought provoking, never hard but some suspect rock and being quite run out make for a route of character. Worth the E3 I think but can't remember how Massambula for example felt (maybe less climbing on it though hence E2?)
